It seems like Carmelo Anthony was serious when he said that we was "big into the art world" and growing his collection. Back in June, we saw him hanging out with Swizz Beatz at an auction where he bought a Muhammad Ali print for $27K. Now we see that he is all smiles with Mr. Brainwash in front of a huge Ali piece in this photo posted to Instagram by his wife Lala.

Melo isn't the only superstar interested in Mr. Brainwash's work. Drake recently shared a portrait of himself by the artist, and he shared a moment and sold some art to Rick Ross back in December. Is Mr. Brainwash the new "it" artist for athletes and rappers?
